Recipe 105: And also this year my birthday arrived…and this needed to be a special TILT birthday, so i decided to cook my favorite dishes all in one dinner!
I started the preparation the night before with the cakes because i wanted to bring one at work and i wanted to have a double choice in my dinner…so finally i cooked 3 cakes: 2 ciambelloni with apples and 1 double color ciambellone.
Ingredients for one cake: 3 eggs, 150 gr sugar, 300gr flour, 80-100 gr butter, 1 glass of milk, some baking powder, and add 2 big appleas and some cinnamon if you want an apple cake or some chocolate if you want a double color one. Finally i bought some colorful sugar to finish the cakes…exactly like my mum use to do it when i was in primary school.
Mix the 3 entire eggs with sugar until create a cream, then add some of the flour and mix again. Put the butter on the fire and when melted add it to the cake. Add the rest of the flour and mix again until becomes very hard.
At the end add the milk with the baking powder and keep on mixing. Then cut the apples in very little pieces and just put it with the rest. The cake is all here, very simple and quick, but everyone will like it.
Now put some butter in all the mold and pass then some flour in it. Like thsi the cake won’t stick to the mold. Then put the mix inside and cover the cake with some funny and colorful sugar sprinkle.
Put in the oven for one hour at 180 degree. Don’t check the cake before than 1/2 an hour at least or it won’t grow up anymore. Open the oven just when you think they already grew up enough.
The easy alternative to this cake is with chocolate. Put some of the mix just prepared,in a little mold and add to the rest of the mixsome chocolate in pouder. Before to add to the rest the chocolate mix, I also put some little pieces of chocolate inside and i covered it with the rest. The last touch will be the chocolate sprinkles on top.
This is the final results of the cakes i had at home, and the following one is the cake i did to bring it at work! They exactly look like my mum’s cakes!
PS.: ciao mamy, che ne pensi? E’ bella come quella che mi facevi tu alle elementari????io direi che ci sono andata vicino, ma la prossima volta devo controllare meglio la cottura. Vabbe per il momento mi accontento! Le due piccole sono quelle che ho fatto per la casa, mentre la grande e’ quella per l’ufficio.
